Yagan Hazard

I am a $4^{\text{th}}$ year economics PhD candidate at the Paris School of Economics, under the supervision of Luc Behaghel. My research interests lie in both econometrics and labor economics. I am on the academic job market in 2022.

My work in econometrics is mainly focused on developing efficient estimation and inference methods for causal parameters (in particular, the LATE parameter). Beside this research agenda, I have strong interests in labor economics. I am particularly interested in measuring the ability of public policies (e.g., tailored job search counseling and training programs) to foster occupational transitions.

Prior to my PhD, I obtained an undergaraduate degree in economics from PSL University, and a master’s degree in economics from the Paris School of Economics while studying at the Ecole Normale Supérieure.

On a more personal note, my way of preserving enthusiasm for my work (and also quite frankly, simply enjoying myself) is mainly through sport climbing and trail running with friends!
